 After buying an entire abandoned ghost town in California, a man is stuck out there due to a snowstorm and the coronavirus

  • In 2018, Brent Underwood purchased an abandoned mining town in California named Cerro Gordo.
  • During the coronavirus pandemic, he has been living there alone for the past month in his own personal ghost town.
  • A heavy snowstorm has trapped Underwood in Cerro Gordo, but he has enjoyed the scenery and he's even taken up astrophotography.
  • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

Brent Underwood is living inside what could be mistaken for a Stephen King novel: The story of a caretaker snowed in at a place with a long, sordid history of violence could just as easily describe "The Shining." But unlike Jack Torrance and his family at the Overlook Hotel, Underwood is living alone in an abandoned mining town. Hopefully, Underwood's having a much better time. All work and no play ...

During the early stages of the coronavirus lockdown, Underwood packed up his truck and headed to California. "I think I'm taking socially isolating to an extreme," he told Insider.

Underwood spoke with Insider about his experiences in the ghost town and how he's been spending his time.

'K...this one had a slide show and would not fetch an image. So...I went through the slide show and then right clicked on the image I wanted and chose "Copy image address"

Then I sent to the form and clicked on the Fetch Image.

When the form came up with the image url bar, I pasted the url for the image and then created the seed, with the correct image displayed.

Fini....simple as that. It did take the usual clean up of the unrelated stuff, but, I think that will be something that is going to be norm for most seeds.
